Exciting News! Otter is ready.

Otter, our second boathouse, set in a secluded position on the shores of the loch, is now finished and ready for bookings. The layout of Otter is very similar to Dipper with stunning views across the loch to Glen Lyon and down to the village of Kenmore.

The decor is in our usual simple style. The colour scheme this time is greys, blues and white – crisp, fresh and smart. We have used our collection of original Ercol furniture and the walls are hung with original paintings, mostly by Scottish artists that we have collected over the years. The bed is very comfy and is made up with luxurious linen and White Company bedspreads and lovely throws. There is a log burning stove.

The bathroom is decorated with pale grey tiles and has a bath and a shower. Lie in the bath, use our Scottish organic bubble bath, relax while enjoying the view of the loch.
Otter is a haven of peace and quiet, well away from the stresses of everyday life. Sit on the deck, admire the spectacular scenery and the wonderful wild life and completely unwind.

To check availability for Otter, please email us at boathouses@lochtay.co.uk or call 01887 830336.
